|Hi, my name is Rowdy. I've gone to the Rainbow Bridge but I'm lookin' out for my Mom and everyone else who rescues Senior dogs.
The humans at that other place used to throw food out the window for me in my little cement yard. I was chained up for years and years, and was getting so depressed; I used to bark all the time but couldn't even lift my head then.
All of a sudden, in the middle of the night and out of nowhere, there was this lady. She undid my chain and took me to another ladies house. This new lady was my Mom! She cried when she saw how dirty and shaky I was. They bathed me (YUCK!), brushed me and fed me good food!
I didn't know living could be so much fun or that people could be so good! Mommy would walk me and brush me and pet me and hug me and feed me treats! Sometimes I'd find little pills in the treats (Mom called them 'glucosamine') and would spit them out, but the treats were good!
I didn't much like sharing Mom with the cats, cuz the other people would hit me if I didn't chase cats in the yard, but I made friends with Ala the white cat. He wasn't so bad...
Mommy took me everywhere; visiting, swimming, even on vacation!
But... As much as I wanted to stay with Mom it was getting so painful to move. I couldn't even get up sometimes, and I was 120lbs!
So Mom took me to the Dr. and though she cried and cried she knew it was time for me to go. I was over 11 after all. Did you know that's over 100 human years for a Dog my size?
I know my Moms angry at those other people, and she still cries when she thinks about me, but she understands that I'm waiting for her with Classy, Omar, Isis, Tinkerbell, King, Whiskey, Puss, Mr. White, and all the other Furbabies she's known.
